Spare: A One Man Play by John Constable
28 June 2013 (Friday) 7.30 start - Treadwells, London
London artist and occultist Austin Osman Spare (1886- 1956) comes alive in this new one-man play. Set in the artist’s studio at the Elephant and Castle on the night of a Blitz bombing, it shows Spare growing old in poverty, yet fiercely committed to his vision. In the course of the night, a rogue sigil unleashes unpredictable consequences. This ‘play conceived as an act of magic’, performed by the author, is both an homage to AOS and a playful exploration of Constable’s own esoteric work to ‘set us free from ourselves.’ John Constable is a poet, playwright and magical practitioner best-known for The Southwark Mysteries, and for his acclaimed stage adaptation of Gormenghast. Previous solo shows include I Was An Alien Sex God (‘mind-blowingly weird’ The Independent).
Seats cost £10: phone Treadwells on 0207 419 8507, or paypal.
I went to the first performance of this a few weeks ago, and enjoyed it a great deal. An very nteresting one-man play, well acted by the writer, John Constable. I recommend it highly.
This is now sold out.
